Revolution Of Everyday Life


Published February 20, 2013


With translator Donald Nicholson-Smith. There is a
grain of truth in the stereotypical view that Guy Debord and Raoul
Vaneigem, as two leading lights of the Situationist International, stood
for two opposite poles of the movement: the objective Debord versus the
subjective Vaneigem: Marxism versus anarchism: icy cerebrality versus
sensualism: and, of course, The Society of the Spectacle versus The Revolution of Everyday Life
--the two major programmatic books of the Situationist International,
written by the two men without consultation, both published in 1967,
each serving in its own way to kindle and color the May 1968 uprisings
in France. Born in Manchester, England, Donald Nicholson-Smith is a
longtime resident of New York City. As a young man he was a member of
the Situationist International (1965-67), and his translations include
Guy Debord's The Society of the Spectacle (Zone) and Henri Lefebvre's The Production of Space
(Blackwell), as well as works by Jean-Patrick Manchette, Thierry
Jonquet, and Paco Ignacio Taibo II. At present he is at work on
Apollinaire's Letters to Madeleine, as sent by the poet from the trenches of Champagne in 1915.Co-sponsored by PM Press.
